But again, the same question arises, how do I find out how and what
all things (in this context of OS)are supported by the compiler, if
there isn't a general way of doing these things??

Then only can I finalise or choose a proper compiler.
If a compiler does not provide what I want, then there is no way I'll
use it
(or test it for that matter...)

> Most Windows compilers have _WIN32 defined, IIRC.
This is a general Win32 macro to detect the presence of Win32 bit
It does not say anything about whether it is NT or 9x.

I think, Mr. DJ should be able to answer it...
